Server issues

#1 Post by Ralph » Sat Mar 06, 2021 3:46 pm

Hostgator is at it again. We decided last week that we're gonna move to a Dutch hosting provider called Servada. There we'll have a scalable VPS and lots of bandwidth. Hopefully our troubled days will then be over.
The move is gonna happen somewhere this month, we don't have an exact date yet.

Hi,

Yes It is extremely slow yesterday and today. Thought it was just me.

Yes it’s been really bad this last week. While on this topic Ralph do you have a copy of the API pages that could be used offline. It’s not always your end that is the issue. I’ve had a few internet outages and I know Keith has also had his problems. It would be nice to be able to refer to the API when working offline. I suppose I could create one if not but will probably be far easier for you.

We've moved to a new server (VPS) today. On our computer going to a page on the website is now almost instant. The server is in the Netherlands, so we're having an advantage there, but we think that it'll do a lot better in general.

There is software that will download the whole site. They you can have the whole site of parts offline.

Just so you're aware - I can't seem to download the Air Player Raspberry Pi image - getting an error from the web server.

The server handled 178 GB of data yesterday, it was peaking at nearly 100% CPU. We had the option to get an extra core, but that wasn't necessary. We're glad that we moved away from Hostgator :)
